The River House is perfect for an after-work drink with friends to a delicious 3-course dinner. Eight of us came her for the latter and we all blown away by the quality of the food. The quantity, presentation and flavour of the starters and mains were perfect. Most of us had steak - split between the rib-eye and fillet. Everyone had a different request re: cut & cooking and they met the challenge. All the meat is sourced from the Royal Farm. Mains ranged from about £13 - £22 (fillet steak) and the starters averaged about £6-7. The service was excellent - professional and friendly, and the location, with a big deck next to the Thames and in the lea of the castle, is superb. This restaurant is a gem and one I'll be coming back to over and again.
My review may be colored by the fact that it was a beautiful sunny day and I got a great seat by the river but it is well situated to take advantage of those circumstances.
I ordered the battered haddock and was pleased with the dish; they definitely took some care in the prep. A nice spot and I would recommend it for lunch.
This is probably my favourite place to eat in Windsor - the staff are friendly, the food is always good, and the option to eat outside by the river on the few days it's actually sunny in the UK is a major plus.
Very reasonably priced given the quality and presentation of the food - it's certainly not London-style expensive. Starters are in the £5-10 range, mains in the £10-25, with desserts around £5.
My only criticism - they could stand to vary the menu a little more often.
I struggled with what category to put this place in... is it a pub masquerading as a restaurant or a restaurant with pub like tendencies???
It is the only (semi) affordable place in windsor or eton that is actually on the river (the only alternative being the house on the bridge which is a good, but very pricy, 'posh' restaurant)
In the summer the outside tables are packed, and so they deserve to be. Watch the ducks, swans and boats meander past while working your way through the really rather good wine list (i recommend the chilean red... )
The menu is a bit special- gastro pub style, really well presented and fresh. Main courses run from about £12 to just over £20- with starters and desserts around £5 to £8 each.
It isnt a place for a cheap bite- 2 courses and a bottle of wine came to £85 for 2, but given the atmosphere, location, quality and really friendly efficient service I would say its up there as one of my windsor favourites!
Just had lunch here, burgers are home made, atmosphere is good and you can sit and watch the boats go past on the thames. Very close to Eton Riverside station.
